    First time there I went pretty conservative. The burgers aren't huge but are filling. Really quality stuff.

    Great burger! Good fries! The Burberry of burgers, at $40 for two people. But money well spent.

    Best burger in the city by far. The patty is unbeatable. Be ready to wait during normal meal times, but you'll be glad you did.

    Thanks to five bun choices, 10-plus patty options, a dozen or so spice blends and 20-plus toppings, the potential burger combinations at this corner shop are dizzying. Read more

    For the Paleo folks like myself, this place does the lettuce "bun" right - whole beef patty & all toppings were neatly encased in the lettuce shell. Wasabi mayo is perfect amount of hotness & flavor!

    The burgers keep me coming back (I really like the lentil burger with onion seasoning), but the slow service gets worse every time I come in. If you go, just be prepared to wait.
